sounds to me like you need a new starter solenoid~

...also sounds like you do not have a NEW battery...after five years will lay waste to your alternator...the Black Cable ....the other end which connects to the chassis ground needs to be scrubbed with a coarse wire brush...disassemble this ground connection to the frame...wirebrush the frame...wirebrush the lug and re-assemble them to assure 300 cold cranking amps potential and good chassis ground that does not vary in terms of available amperage and varying voltages~

...well yes, I was on vacation for ten days, but sounds like the ignition is not getting energized.....will search for an ignition relay for your car...else a defective ignition switch may do this as well...coil...fuse?~

...alright they call it a "starter motor relay", but this might be the thing~
